Quarterfinals feature rematch of 2014 men’s final

NEW YORK — Marin Cilic looks for history to repeat in a quarterfinal rematch of the 2014 U.S. Open final.

The No. 7 seed faces No. 21 Kei Nishikori on Wednesday, four years after beating the Japanese player for his first Grand Slam title. Nishikori has won eight of the 14 meetings.

The other men’s quarterfinal features No. 6 seed Novak Djokovic against John Millman. The unseeded Australian knocked out 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the fourth round to reach his first major quarterfinal.

Djokovic won his 13th Grand Slam at Wimbledon, just after beating Millman 6-2, 6-1 at Queen’s Club in their only previous meeting.

On the women’s side, American Madison Keys, last year’s runner-up, looks to return to the semifinals for the second straight year against Carla Suarez Navarro. No. 20 seed Naomi Osaka of Japan and Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine are both looking for their first semifinal appearance when they meet in the day’s first quarterfinal in Arthur Ashe stadium.
